sweet little teacher gifts

{ignore the dirty windows! gesh!}

charlie's last day of preschool before break is tomorrow.
i think most classes collect money and buy a gift, but it sure is sweet
to give just a little something personal too.
i know my kiddos love to do it.

1.} a paperwhite kit from trader joes
2.} a spring of fresh greens
3.} a little pretty ribbon
4.} a scrap of white burlap stitched into a gift sack 
(i used my sewing machine, took 10 seconds)
5.} a card {not pictured}

if you are curious this is my favorite, favorite brand of ribbon...

{i buy it at the container store, but you should be able to order on-line too}

off to make 5 more...
